Check to see if crankshaft pulley is turning. If not, broken crank maybe.

1991 Cressida How do i know if my alternator is bad?


if the alternator is not charging , there will be a red battery light on the dash
reasons for engine stopping are
broken timing belt/chain, cam/crank position sensor failure
immobilizer activation
ignition control module failure
run the fault codes as some engine lights only light up for urgent problems that require you to stop the engine

Rav4 wont start but cranking and no engine an overdrive light


Does this engine have fuel? Does it have spark? Is it getting air? These are the questions you need to answer. First thing you should check for is spark due to it being the easiest to diagnose. Hope this helps. Btw air is almost never the issue. So check for fuel next

Turns over but wont crank...horrible screeching noise


To clarify, if the engine cranks or turns over but won't start, look for a stuck pulley on the engine. You may be hearing the belt slipping on that pulley. Take the belt off and try turning each pulley - also try starting the engine with the belt off.

Yesterday i changed my passenger side mirror connected the wires and while i was driving it was good when i cut car off it wont start now ,but all the lights and everything works but it wont crank?


First you need to find out if the car will start when jump started or battery charger assisted. If it does, it is probably either the battery or alternator. You can have them both checked for free at most autoparts stores.

If it doesn't start, then you have to figure out if it is the starter or something in the engine froze up. If you take the serpentine belt off and can turn the main crank shaft with a large wrench then the engine is free and your starter is the problem. If it won't turn you have internal engine problems.

Installed new battery minutes ago. Lights, horn


Hi:
I am not sure what was the reason why your battery needed replacing, but if it was dead, I am guessing your alternator wasn't charging it?
Take off the serpentine belt on your engine, and check to see if all accessory items turn smoothly, to include the power steering pump, AC, alternator, and the idler pulley. If any of these wont turn , the car won't crank either. If you totally remove the belt, you can see if the car will start, and go from there, but don't let it run too long without the belt.

1991 honda civic si starting problem


have you check the ground wire from your negative wire to battery post? check to see the battery is strong. if it doesn't turn over the engine or crank the engine mean no good ground to the cables. if the car ran fine I dont understand why the car wont crank or turn the motor over it just quit. if the battery check out strong 12 V, starter serenoid may be faulty on your starter or it may be hot and will not turn starter over.
